In 1995, Babe was nominated for an Academy award against Sense and Sensibility, Il Postino, Braveheart and Apollo 13. It lost to Braveheart, of course, but at the time, the academy had been dabbling with supporting children’s entertainment by nominating films like Beauty and the Beast for best picture – in all cases those nominations were the wins. Now there’s a category for animated pictures, and likely we’ll never see Pixar win a best picture trophy. But watching Babe again, it’s hard not to call it a classic. And it’s hard not to call it a masterpiece, kid’s film or no. Babe was robbed, and our review of the Blu-ray follows after the jump.
